SUMMER HOLIDAY

Whether pinned, tucked, draped or whipped into a froth of gravity-defying ruffles, cocktail dresses and evening gowns ruled the runway, a clear indicator of Marshall’s briskest business in recent years: bridal wear. (Well that and dressing Paula Abdul.)

Whether pinned, tucked, draped or whipped into a froth of gravity-defying ruffles, cocktail dresses and evening gowns ruled the runway.
